Here is a story of two wonderful bloggers on opposite sides of the planet wearing Book of Deer: Katherine of Corgis and Cocktails
and Katie of Coeurs de Foxes
both share a love of our glow-in-the-dark Kindling Dress
and collaborated on an adorable joint outfit post. I can't express how happy it makes me to see these two girls make the dress their own, Katie's urban wintery styling shows us how to carry the dress into the colder months while Katherine styles the dress for a day frolicking in the sunshine. Both girls are perfect manifestations of the Book of Deer girl I have in mind when I'm designing.
Katherine of Corgis and Cocktail's story:
"I fell for this dress the moment I saw it pop up on a few sites in my Google Reader. Sometime sparked my mind while dreaming of spring, and I decided to check the site to see if the dress was finally for sale, and it was. A few days later, my husband bought it for me for Valentine's day. But I shipped it to my old home in Ohio, 8 hours away! Fortunately, my friends and family passed it around and got it to me in Pennsylvania. Wearing it was so fun - I kept glowing throughout the day in the dark hallways at work, and everytime I looked down at the print, I smiled. I'm pretty much obsessed with the cutouts."
Katie of Coeurs de Foxes' story:
"Honestly, I got this dress some time go. I wore it few times. The weather sux lately so every time I tried take photos I went home cus I wasn't able to stay outside wearing only this dress. Yesterday was just cold like the other days, but I was super determined to take photos. The temperature was on minus. I tried to take photos three times and third time it worked. My dress didn't came straight to me- just like Katherine's. Mine came to my nan. I remember like it was yesterday. My nan phoned me I got a parcel. My nan told me the envelope is full of lovely illustrations and I realised it was from Eilidh. I was super curious what's inside cus I told Eilidh to send me a surprise. She has too many amazing stuff in store so I wasn't able to decide what exactly I want. I asked my nan to open the envelope and I just heard in the phone: "wow, this is a beautiful, blue dress! And it sparks in the dark!". Then I knew which dress is this. This is why next day I came to my nan to receive the dress. Now, I love this dress so much so I wear this every day I can."
Katie and Katherine for bringing my designs to life!
